June Bullet Journal Spread

Since sharing my post about things you should know before you start a bullet journal, I have had so many messages about setting up a spread that is minimalistic. I thought because I am having a busy month, that taking the minimal amount of time to set up for June would work best for me.

This layout takes the form of bullet journaling back to the original Ryder Carroll method. I am very interested to see my levels of productivity compared to the more creative designs when filling it in and setting up for my weekly spreads.

This set up for June is so minimal and nearly all monochrome, so it looks very basic but it is very functional. So if you are wanting to start bullet journaling but do not want to doodle or be creative this set up is for you.

Front page

This front page for the start of the month I think is the quickest and easiest I have ever done. Less than 5 minutes and I was finished. I love how simple this looks and it is so easy for anyone to recreate.

Habit & Mood tracker

This is the simplest form of a habit and mood tracker, again this spread took such a short space of time. As if you have followed me for a while you will know especially my trackers I usually have more creative ideas which sometimes can take up a bit of time. This layout is super functional and it is not about how pretty I can make it. I want to focus on the productivity rather than the colours or how the design looks. I just want to be able to grab a pen and fill in the information quickly. Having both these trackers on one page doesn’t only save space in my journal but I am more likely to record all the information as it is all in one place.

Blog statistics & Monthly statistics

As I have said in previous bullet journal spread posts I will always keep this page to track my progress or where I need to improve. I added a monthly tracker for my blog which is new information I want to record. I can then see the overall view of June and compare that with upcoming months. This layout hasn’t needed any colour and has required minimal effort.

Instagram plan & Monthly statistics

This form of planning for my Instagram has been really helpful in creating content consistently for my Instagram grid. Instead of taking the time to draw individual boxes like I have been creating in previous months, I have created the plan in list form for a simplistic way of planning. I have decided to include a monthly statistics for my Instagram, sharing the statistics for each week. Not only is this helpful for me to understand my audience but it is information I can share with brands.

Gratitude log

I used to include a page each month that had a highlight of the day, but I fell out of love with it. However, with everything happening I think that it is important to practise gratitude daily. I will be filling this in as part of my evening routine. I used the same title design for the whole spread of June. However, I did decide to add some colour because I felt that gratitude should have some positive colours. I used a highlighter and took minimal time, highlighters are a great way to add colour to a spread if you do not want to doodle. Gratitude is important to practise everyday to improve your mindset and mental wellness.

First Weekly Spread

This spread was quick to set up and is perfect for what I want to use it for. I will recording my top to do list tasks for the day. This is the simplest weekly spread but again I am hoping with no need for colour or designs, it will boost my productivity. I love the black and white look, very classic.

This spread is very different to what I have designed previously. I know a lot of you messaged asking for a simple design with minimal effort. This was simple to set up but very functional for you to be able to record all your information and to record all your weekly tasks. If you are wanting to see more creativity designs you can see my May spread or my September spread. I am very interested in seeing how this spread works for me or whether I will miss the colour and washi tape too much ha ha!

Do you prefer a minimal spread or something more creative? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  1. This is lovely and simple. My journal was minimalist for ages and I’m going back to it in June because it’s going to be a really busy month and I don’t have to worry about having the right colour pen on hand to complete my spreads!

      1. One of the best features of a BuJo in my opinion- you can always try something new and move on if it doesn’t work!

  2. I love this minimalistic design, it looks so professional, especially as you have really neat handwriting. I also love your colourful spreads though – I guess it’s great to have a variety and try something new!

  3. Those pages look so satisfying! I’ve been keeping a lockdown journal because I’m awful at remembering dates and details, but it looks nothing like this! Fantastic job 🙂

  4. Okay, love your bullet journal set up. I really like the minimalistic style. I started my own bullet journal this year for the first. Just to see if I would like it. But next year I will buy a more professional bullet journal because it is so much fun

  5. Love your bullet journal, it gives you loads of control and useful statistics!
    I might have to start with that myself haha

  6. Love the minimalist look, I think I would be somewhere in the middle depending on how much time I have to spare! This looks great for stat measuring and Instagram planning which I really need to do more of!

  7. This is so fun. I always love seeing these kind of posts. This is perfect for when you wanna stay organized but you don’t have much time on hand.

  8. Just out of curiosity, do you not find the focus on numbers can be quite depressing? I know if I was tracking my views and comments every day I would really struggle if a post didn’t perform

  9. I love this set up! I am really new to bullet journaling so love seeing new layouts. A lot of them are really complex so this one is easy to re-create. Thank you -x-

  10. Even when you create a simple spread, it is still simply attractive. I also love how much I connected with the ease of creating something meaningful and pretty to look at the same time; sometimes black and white is all we need!

    On a side note, I love your hand-writing! 🙂

  11. This looks so beautiful even with the simplistic approach. Your handwriting is gorgeous, I love the way you’ve done the titles for everything. I have very little creativity so this leaves me inspired that bullet journals can still work for me – thanks!

    1. Bullet journals can definitely work if you don’t want to be creative. That’s how Ryder Carroll developed the method. Thank you for reading and commenting.

    1. I love it too. My audience asked for simple layouts they can copy as some are starting out. I definitely think it’s important to start out simple and build up

  12. I love the simplicity in this! Also, I contacted you via email and it’d be great if you could take a look at it 🙂

      1. Just checking to see if you’re still interested! I’ll be compiling all answers in a day

      2. Sure. Could you perhaps just send a test email to my email address (using the contact page)? Perhaps I sent my email to a different email address. This way, I’ll be able to reply to ur email.

  13. This looks so good! I’ve been wanting to start a bullet journal for a while now but i’m too scared it won’t look good haha!

    1. Don’t be scared, mistakes will happen. Also start off simple. Like this, then build up. I was asked to do this simple layout for some beginners that follow me. You should give it a go!

  14. Exactly, you loose the actual productivity. So I was asked for a simple design, I am interested to see how it works for me! Thank you for reading and commenting!

  15. Give it a go. Just use the gratitude idea or maybe a highlight of the day, each day you right one positive thing could be anything. I always find that so helpful

  16. I love this layout! It really goes to show that less is more – definitely going to use this in one of my next spreads! Thanks for sharing 🙂 x

  17. I like this minimalist approach cause I’m the only one who is going to look at the journal so I feel like as much as I like to look at intricate designs that people think up, I really just need the journal to be functional. Thanks!

  18. I just plain need to start doing this – I eyeball them daily but I don’t record and track them.

  19. I have to say that one of the main reasons I don’t use my BuJo much is because I find all the creative layouts too intimidating. So this is very much a design I can get on board with – I might even start using my BuJo properly again 🙂 Thank you for sharing this one, Lauren! Lisa xxx

  20. This is gorgeous, I love the writing style you’ve used for headings. I think sometimes I don’t keep up with my bullet journal because I put too much pressure on making it look complex so this is right up my street!

  21. I love this layout you created. So simple and something others could definitely use especially us Bloggers.

  22. I really enjoy the minimalist bullet journal spread. It seems very doable and an easy way to track progress for the month. Great post.

  23. Ok I actually love this set up! I love how simple it looks and yet it’s so elegant and sophisticated. I really want to start a bullet journal and this has definitely inspired me to do so!

    1. I definitely recommend starting off simple and you can build it up if you want. Thank you for reading and commenting. Can you link your blog, so I can read

  24. I LOVE this!!! Especially the title fonts 😍 I am definitely going to be trying a minimalist spread in the coming months as im usually a big doodler! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  25. I’ve had a bullet journal before but stopped using it in the end but I wanna buy a new one. I love how minimalist this is. I was so focused on making it pretty I spent hours trying to get it perfect – completely missing the point of using it productively (for myself)!

  26. Love the classic look you have going with this one. I love having both creative and simple look. I’m looking for new ideas to keep track of my blog stats. Great job on this, neat to the point. ♥️♥️♥️💯

  27. I’m a minimalist at heart. This looks great in my opinion. However, I love seeing how creative others can get with theirs too.
